Lilac and Roses Fine Art Magnet Refrigerator Magnet
"Lilacs and Roses" was painted by French Impressionist painter, Edouard Manet, 1982-83. It is within a series of small floral paintings he did in the last days of his life. The flowers were given to him by friends as they came to visit him. He had to sit while he painted them because he was too ill to paint while standing. They were small paintings because he didn't want to take too long to paint them in his ill condition. Of course, as an artist, the desire to paint them was always there and it probably distracted him from his illness for awhile to be able to paint.
